I am trying to run Matplotlib 0.87.4 on WinXP after having installed from the binaries posted on sourceforge. Unfortunately, when I try importing from pylab, I get a popup declaring:
“This application has failed to start because MSVCP71.dll was not found.”
I usually work on Mac/Linux, so I have no idea what this means. Here is the traceback.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in ?

from matplotlib._ns_transforms import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
I have tried building matplotlib myself using mingw32, but with no success. Any help is most appreciated.
